This is the fifth Cookie Cook Book I have purchased this year. This one is very comprehensive. If you like to bake you will enjoy this book. There are tons of different types of cookie recipes to chose from. One thing I like about this book is that the recipes are sectioned by type, meaning "Rolled", "Dropped", "Sliced" etc...There are lots of pictures and at the beginning of the book there is a synopsis about baking in general, the ingredients you buy and use and the bakeware you use. The recipes range from quick & easy to time consuming. I recommend this cook book if you like to bake cookies.
The Loaded with Chocolate Chip Cookies and Fancy Jumbles are a favorite of all my friends. I bake them in our dorm kitchen oven and hand them out randomly. Everyone who sees me coming with the plate gets really excited.
There is a fantastic number of choices in this book, and the recipes are easy to follow, he has definitely done his homework. The Shortbread Cookie recipe in the book is the first one I tried because they're one of my favorites. After trying many other Shortbread recipes this is the only one that works! Some of the recipes contained in the book seem common but don't be fooled. Every recipe I've tried has been better than any other one I have and I have lots. My only complaint is you have to go looking for pictures of the cookies, and not all the recipes have pictures. This of course is the main problem with all cook books, there are rarely enough pictures. If you like to bake cookies this is a must, if you like to eat cookies buy it and give it to someone who'll bake them for you. The only problem will be which cookie to bake first!
Every recipe I've tried out of this book has come out wonderfully. I can't get through the holidays without it. The recipes are straightforward and easy to follow, and the book is full of pictures that make you want to try each and every cookie, brownie, and bar there's a recipe for.
